SMS Festival Director speaking at The Classic June 25

Tuesday 25 June, 6:30-7pm

Upstairs at the Classic Comedy Club, 321 Queen Street


Join Festival Director Gina Dellabarca for an informal chat about Show Me Shorts before this month’s Script-to-Screen Writer’s Room.

Show Me Shorts is New Zealand’s major national short film festival. Selected films gain widespread audience exposure, plus the chance to compete for awards. There are cash prizes up for grabs as well as filmmaking tools and equipment. The big winner on the night also now takes away Academy Awards accreditation.

Gina will give insight into what the festival are looking for, as well as answering your questions on entry critera, prizes and the meaning of our new Academy Awards accreditation.

Head downstairs afterwards for Script to Screen’s monthly Writer’s Room and hear from Venice Film Festival programmer Paolo Bertolin, from 7:30-8:30pm. Pizza will be served at 8:30pm.

Entries are still open for this year’s festival- see our Entry page and FAQ to find out more!
